Welcome to AFF.

You certainly can't "buy" them.

You could get 25000 buy buying 20000 Starboard Preferred Guest points and transferring them - but that is limited per year.

Easiest is probably to sign up for some credit cards for their fat sign on bonuses.
Depends on how quick you need them though as they can take up to 2 or 3 months to be creditted.

Amex Platinum Charge $1200 = 80k MR points = 80k Velocity points
Amex Velocity Platinum $349 = 50k Velocity Points
Citibank Signature $295 = 60k Citi Points = 40k Velocity points
ANZ Rewards black $0 (first year) = 50k ANZ points = 20k Velocity Points
Virgin Velocity High Flyer $349 = 20k velocity points

You can "buy" them through an AMEX reward program at 2.5c/pt. You'd have to be getting a pretty good deal to be buying them at that price though!

Why such a need for points.... 1,000/10,000 maybe I can understand, but 100k

Wouldn't be just more cost (& time) effective purchasing whatever you need outright?

That's what I think. 100k is only enough for one wax to LAX in J.

If OP can provide the use for the 100k points perhaps we can suggest alternatives?

Also NAB Velocity rewards premium $150 for 40k velocity points if you apply by 31 july.
